Tyson Fury Responds To WBC Over Rankings For 10 Most Powerful Heavyweights Of All Time
Tyson Fury has hilariously bragged that he will have soon beaten three of the most powerful heavyweights in history after reacting to the WBC's rankings post.
WBC took to Instagram on Saturday and revealed who ranked in the top 10 hardest-hitting fighters based on data collected by LFSports.
And the 32-year-old Brit superstar eyed up fellow rival Anthony Joshua in the rankings ahead of their potential unification mega-fight.
The 'Gypsy King' posted in the comments: "The funny thing is me mr [sic] feather duster has beaten 2 of the biggest punchers in history soon the be 3 of them."
Fury defied the odds in 2015 when he travelled to Dusseldorf and dethroned the mighty Klitschko from the top of the heavyweight division.
The former unified world champ fought fierce rival Wilder in 2018 and secured a controversial draw in their blockbuster bout.

Other legends who made the top 10 included Mike Tyson, George Foreman, Joe Frazier and Lennox Lewis.
Fury, who has sent 'AJ' a warning ahead of their potential super-fight, brought the rankings up on BT Sport and insisted Joshua will be beaten by a "feather duster."
He explained: "An interesting fact is me -- the old feather duster here who can't crack an egg -- has beaten the number one and number four biggest punchers in the heavyweight division.
"The WBC did a thing [rankings] from one to ten, the biggest punchers in heavyweight history.
"Number one was Wilder and number four was Klitschko. Mr feather duster has beaten both and I am about to beat another one in the top 10 in 'AJ.'
"So that will be three knockout masters beaten by a feather duster -- it is not bad is it?"
Wilder, whose rematch with Fury is likely to take place in December, mocked the Brit in the build-up to their second fight by saying he has "pillows as fists."
Joshua, 30, has promised boxing fans that he will "break" Fury's head within the first six rounds of their all-British showdown.
